Attribution and Linking of Pictures from Flickr

It is flattering to be advised that some of my pictures have been posted on this thread. (http://skyscrapercity.com/showthread...1212205&page=3). Posted by Potiz81

The relevant images are http://www.flickr.com/photos/robwallace/4441662454 and http://www.flickr.com/photos/robwallace/7746460/. . However, I would have preferred that my permission was asked before posting here.

Further, it is required by Flickr guidelines that there should be proper attribution and a link back to the original image on Flickr when used in this way. Surely, not difficult to do, and to give credit to the photographer

I'm sure the same applies to other Flickr photographers whose images were used in this thread.

Would be interesting to see the Natural Seven Wonders of Brazil, since Brazil is an amazing natural country. What would you include, beside the Itaipů falls and the Corcovado/rio de janeiro bay? Thanks!

...ok let's see some other different seven wonders from Italy, this time naturalistically (shouldn't we open that other thread?)

1. The Dolomiti mountains







2. Gulf of Naples with the Vesuvio volcan, Capri, the Grotta Azzurra and the Faraglioni rocks and ischia



Now some architecture finally, the city of Naples itself, filled with more than 448 very decorated and monumental churches (that is, built before XIX century)





















3. Tuscan hills



image hosted on flickr








And always in central Italy, in the Tosco-Emilian Appennines, we have the "pietra Bismantova":



4. Tavolara island in Sardinia







5. Como and Lombardy lakes













and finally some great architecture: the magnificent Isola Bella, built by noble Borromeo family









image hosted on flickr






6. Gran Paradiso natural park and the matternhorn (or Cervino) in the alps of valle d'aosta







7. Etna volcan, Sicily



[IMG]http://i40.************/5ppvg7.jpg[/IMG]

View from the famous Taormina gulf and Taormina Greek theater towards Etna erupting...

[IMG]http://i44.************/v6rr7b.jpg[/IMG]

the Etna seen from continental Italy. Its eruptions are continuous, spectacular and completely harmless since there is a vast natural park protecting cities from the volcano's fires



I hope you enjoyed them

My list for Germany

1. Fernsehturm, Berlin
Still the tallest structure in Berlin and Germany and one of the tallest in Europe.
Not the first, but for sure one of the most famous tv towers and in my opinion the most beautiful one.
Timeless design.

( http://www.geo-reisecommunity.de/bil...n-Berlin-Mitte )

2. former Airport Tempelhof, Berlin
The over 1.2 km long mother of modern airports. And the biggest (floor area-wise) building of the world by its time.
It still is one of the biggest of the world.

( http://le.terminal.a.over-blog.com/a...-77187362.html )

3. Kölner Dom, Cologne
This one took over 800 years to complete it. One of the most impressive cathedrals of the world and one of the biggest.




4. Messeturm, Frankfurt
The second tallest skyscraper of Germany, but the most beautiful one. Its just a fantastic timeless design.
For me even one of the best of the world.


( wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fr..._bei_Nacht.jpg )


5. Speicherstadt, Hamburg
A big warehouse district of Hamburg, one of its major landmarks and an impressive sight. A great engineering of the 19th century.


(both http://www.hamburg-tourism.de/sehens...speicherstadt/ and http://www.welt.de/regionales/hambur...ulturerbe.html)



6. historic cityscape of Dresden
Once called one of the most beautiful cities of the world. Dresden however suffered heavy damage by the 2nd WW and 40 years of commie rule.
However, major sights survived all that and today great parts of the old town are renovated and reconstructed. A marvel of beauty.

( Frank Kaiser - http://frankkaiser.com/ )



7. Castle of Schwerin
Probably the most unknown of the 7, but for me it is the most beautiful castle of Germany. Fantastic building itself
in a great location on a island right next to the city center of Schwerin.

( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sc...Schloss-gp.jpg )


If I could name 7 more, the list would include many more famous landmarks and impressive buildings:
Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Ulm Cathedral, Castle Neuschwanstein, ...

Wonderful architectonic jewels in All countries shown in this thread. I specially liked France.

About the geographic wonders, I think you should move the pictures of Brazil and Italy to your own thread since this is only for architecture. It looks messy when people start putting things that dont belong to the thread.
